Outlook:  The Bucks, Celtics, and Sixers play the equivalent of a round-robin tournament this weekend, each playing one game against the other two.  Let’s call it The CheeseLobsterSteak Classic.  It began last night with the Sixers closely contested win over Boston.  Given the physical nature of that game, the Bucks should have a chance to jump on a weary road team playing the second night of a back-to-back.  Defensively, the Sixers are really strong at small forward, where Andre Iguodala is the NBA’s version of a shutdown wing player.  However, Philly is softer defensively at point guard and center, which should play to the Bucks’ strengths in Jennings  and Bogut — and Boykins of late.

Prediction:  Bucks 84-81.
